Welcome to my world...

Hi everyone and welcome to my little piece of the world!

It has been evident to me since I was in about seventh grade, that I love writing and it is a talent I have been blessed with . It wasn't until I reached the ripe old age of 28 though, that I realized God had a much bigger plan for the gift he had given me.

Through blogging on MySpace, I was able to reach not only those that I knew in my own life, but also complete strangers and was amazed at how just my "ramblings" had helped so many people to be inspired, encouraged, or just to think about things in a new way.

From there, it grew into an inspirational column in The Charlotte Observer, then a religious news column in The Statesville Record & Landmark, a speaking engagment for a women's church group and now, a gig as a religion news freelance writer for The Charlotte Observer.

The writing that is closest to my heart though is not the news reporting, but the words that come from my soul - the words that I know God puts there not only to help me to understand life better, but also those around me.

I hope you feel encouraged, enlightened and inspired but what you read here and of course, I look forward to hearing back from you too!

After a long and eventful journey, I've decided to go ahead and give Jesus his own blog. ;-) Well in a way anyway.

I used to write on my MySpace page about whatever was on my mind that particular day... greed, love, envy, friendship... and along the way I happened to just inspire a few people. Not just my friends or even my MySpace "friends," but also total strangers that just happened upon my blog and found what I had to say interesting. I got so many positive responses that I realized God obviously wanted me to do something more with it, so I ended up writing for a few newspapers. I was lucky enough to inspire some more people before the fall of America's economy took away my writing outlet. :-(

Here is a link though to some of my articles that were published: http://www2.statesville.com/content/list/lifestyles/religion/columnists/baxter/.

So... now it's back to the barebones approach! Back to blogging and venting... and maybe touching someone's life out there in a positive way. I also just got accepted on as the Spirituality examiner for the Charlotte area, so check out my page at: http://www.examiner.com/x-10718-Charlotte-Christian-Spirituality-Examiner.

That's it for now! Hopefully the hectic day-to-day craziness of life won't keep me from writing too often and I look forward to hearing from you all (at least the nice ones of you anyway!) :-)
